Mom Quotes

A mom refers to a woman who is related to a child by giving birth, adoption or remarriage (step-mothers). Birth moms are there from the very beginning of a child's life; adoptive moms are rescuers that provide a second chance by providing a new life for a child. Meanwhile, stepmothers are women who take responsibility of motherhood after a new relationship or remarriage.

While, there are many different types of moms out there, (including pet moms), they all have one thing in common. Which is providing unconditional love and, to care for another human being.  A mom's role is very critical in a child's upbringing. Mom's are the first teacher and a secure anchor.

Some of us are blessed to have a healthy upbringing and relationship with our moms, while for others, it can be the opposite.
